A BMX freestyle and skate park facility under construction at Beenleigh is set to open in December 2019 with a National competition.

A new world-class urban course costing approximately $3.1 million is considered by the Logan City Council a future tourism asset and Olympic Games venue, with BMX debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Cycling Australia has rated the new facility as Australia’s premier BMX freestyle facility.

Urban Park inclusions
– Rail pipes and selection of steel ramps
– Lighting for night use
– Concrete surface that makes for smoother riding.
– Existing half pipe at the park will be retained and refurbished.



Logan City Council is promoting the new facility stating, “the City of Logan is a strong and ongoing supporter of BMX”.

“That’s why Logan City Council is spending $3.1 million to upgrade Doug Larsen Park into Australia’s premier BMX freestyle and skate park facility”.

“The design of the new freestyle course was finalised after Council hosted a workshop that included Logan-raised BMX freestyle 2017 world champion Logan Martin along with representatives from Cycling Australia and the local BMX community.”

The BMX freestyle and skate park had the following input:
– Logan Martin, BMX freestyle 2017 world champion (below image)
– Wade Bootes, Technical Director (BMX) for Cycling Australia
– Clint Millar, from Colony BMX
– Ross Lavender and Nathan Philps, from the local BMX community.



Logan is set to host a number of new events, first being the Freestyle BMX Nationals held in mid December 2019.

Logan Martin,  2017 world champion is excited to have the National tournament in his home town. “I’m excited for the Nationals to be held at Beenleigh this year, not only because I grew up locally to Beenleigh but because of the recent rebuild of the skatepark,” “Unfortunately last year I was injured so I had to miss a few events including the Nationals, so my goal in 2019 is to not only attend the Nationals but to ride my best and take home the green and gold”. “I’m always doing my best at every event but now these events have a lot more importance as Tokyo Olympic team selection is coming up very quickly.” said Martin.
